If you enjoy TdM's original plays centered on local history, we encourage you to spend a lovely Sunday afternoon at Whitewater State Park for a performance of "A Whitewater World".
This one act play describes and enacts moments from Whitewater's past, highlighting the people and natural events that made the park what it is today, and is presented in honor of the park's 100th birthday.
The performance is free, but you'll need a park pass.
Performances are at 4 pm, every Sunday in August. It is presented in the restored meadow, not far from the parking lot for the beach. Unfortunately, getting to the field is not very accessible; fortunately, a sound system has been set up to ensure folks who prefer to sit up on the road can hear the actors and musicians.
Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and bug spray!

Theatre du Mississippi of Winona, MN

Winona State University will be presenting "The Frogs" April 10-14.
It is actually pretty amazing that this political satire written in 400 BCE can have so much to say about our current state of affairs (and with a dismaying lack of need for rewriting - only the names have been changed to point out the guilty!).

Tickets are 12$ general admission, and are available at the door or online at www.WSUArtsTickets.com
